Like a prayer - Come un'orazione

by Mimmo Mallamo February. 10, 2011 1615 views

Se fossi un sacerdote come un'orazione
con la lingua tra i denti ti pronuncerei,
se fossi un sacerdote come un salmo segreto
con le mani sulla bocca ti canterei.
(Ivano Fossati, songwriter and Italian musician, “Carte da decifrare”) []

If I were a priest, like a prayer,
I will pronounce you, with the tongue between my teeth.
If I were a priest like a secret psalm,
with my hands over my mouth, I would sing you.

I apologize for the English translation that may be unclear, but the Italian is a language already so difficult, imagine when you need to translate the words of a song. :(
